Bulgogi Burger

Talk about a first world problem!  We are just jaded enough to crave new favors but have had enough tasty food (burgers particularly)  that it takes a bit to wow us as well. This burger is good. It's probably great but we just have a hard time feeling like giving an accurate opinion to anyone outside the family. Ok ramble over. It's good. Enough said. The sesame seeds in the burger were interesting. It's also a great way to be introduced to Kim chi.  Worth a try for sure.  I

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons gochujang
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 5 scallions, chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic, grated
  • 2 tablespoons ginger, grated
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 6 burger buns
  • 14 ounces kimchi. roughly chopped

Mix all of the marinade ingredients together (everything except the beef, buns, and kimchi) and it will be a paste like consistency. Mix the paste with the beef. This mixture can be used immediately or left to marinade in the fridge for up to a few days.
Form the meat into thin burger patties and grill for about 7 minutes per side to medium-well
Serve patties on the burger buns, and top with kimchi.
